"Stunning coastline and popular beach break."

Merewether is a very sort after location - the beach, ocean baths, cafes, parks and shops are all an easy walk.

"Location Location Location"

Great suburb to live, safe community with beautiful beaches and cafe's. Close to shopping centres, parks, sporting fields.

Beautiful coastal paths to enjoy getting out to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Rental returns will vary depending on property, I would always recommend a comparable market appraisal to determine estimated rental return.

"Central Location"

Extremely central to Newcastle CBD. Access to ample Merewether/Newcastle schools. Minutes to the beach and some great sized blocks. A variety of young couples (unit blocks), elderly and families.

"The ultimate seachange"

We bought our house here in the westerly part of Merewether and really didn't realise how good living here is until we moved in. Phenomenal beaches a stones throw away, versatile shopping and eating options in the Junction, great pubs on every corner, the new Merewether surf house with it's magnificent views for sunset drinks, kotara and charlestown major shopping centres just 5 minutes away (coles at The Junction)... the list goes on.

Too many options for leisure time - the beaches, parks, amazing golf courses or a day trip out to Nelson Bay or the Hunter Valley, not to mention Sydney just down the road. The lively precincts of Darby St and Honeysuckle are 5 minutes away. Great schools/university and healthcare and the bonus of having an airport which has ridiculous cheap airfares to fly to Melbourne and Brisbane for somewhere between 40 - 80 when they're on sale. You can also fly to Byron Bay, Sydney and Canberra.

We 'accidentally' landed here and thought the real estate agent was talking rubbish when he said on the suburb scale, Merewether was an (11/10) - never thought I'd say it but he was right! We haven't looked back since moving here and just love the lifestyle. (We have lived in Melbourne and Sydney previously)
